Champion fundraiser Willie’s delight at public response to charity Christmas CD

Only 80 of 300 CDs remain- so if you want one Yule have to act fast!!

Willie's dog Maisie loves 'Christmas Time in Armagh'

Armagh champion charity fundraiser Willie Nugent’s festive CD is proving a big hit!

Willie released the CD last month to aid two very worthy causes.

The CD contains two songs written by the man himself – ‘Christmas Time in Armagh’ and ‘The Market Down at the Shambles’.

They were recorded by the Dublin singer Larry Hogan with proceeds going to ‘The Friends of the Cancer Centre City Hospital Belfast’ and ‘The Royal Hospital for Sick Children Belfast’.

The CDs went on sale at outlets across Armagh with a run of 300 copies.

They are selling at £2 each and the hope is to hand over £300 to each charity.

And with just weeks to go to Christmas, it looks like he is set to hit his target.

There are now just 80 of the original 300 copies left to buy and Willie told Armagh I he is thrilled with the response so far.

He said: “On behalf of the charities involved I would like to say a big ‘thank-you’ to everyone who have to date bought one of my CDs.

“I would lso like to express my thanks to all the local businesses who are selling his CD and a special word of thanks to Armagh I for helping to make this charity fundraiser a success.”

If you have not got your copy yet now is the time to get cracking!

The are available to buy at a number of outlets across the city centre, namely the Ulster Gazette Shop, Scotch Street; Pet World, Thomas Street; Dessie’s, Upper English Street; Raffles, Lower English Street, Mulberry Bistro, Cathedral Road; Curran’s Spar, Cathedral Road; O’Kanes Superstore, Moy Road; McKenna’s Bar; McKeevers Chemist, Railway Street; and Armagh Blooms at Killylea Road.
